Is This Gaming Rig Compatible?

Intel Core i5-2500K 3.30GHz (Sandybridge) Socket LGA1155 Unlocked Processor - Retail

650W XFX Core Edition 80PLUS Bronze Power Supply (Seasonic OEM)

4GB Corsair XMS3 (1x4GB) DDR3 PC3-10666C9 1333MHz 1.5v Memory Stick - CMX4GX3M1A1333C9

ASUS P8Z68-V LX Intel Z68 (REV B3) Socket 1155 DDR3 PCI-Express Motherboard

Cooler Master HAF 912 Plus Black Midi Tower Chassis

Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO Quiet CPU Cooler

PowerColor AMD Radeon HD 6950 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card

Want to know if these parts would work together and also if it's a good enough build for around £600

  1. Yep! All good except the memory... Install the memory in pairs to take advantage of the dual memory controllers. Installing one module will have you running in single channel mode. Fine and all, but reduced performance and less than ideal.
  2. You'll likely save a tidbit of money by going with 2x2GB over 1x4Gb as well.
  3. well i was going to upgrade to 2x4gb later but i guess i just go 2x2gb and leave it at that
  4. You may be able to find 8GB (2x4gb) now for a good price. Memory is cheap... 4GB is a lot, but if you are already planning that 8GB upgrade, maybe you go ahead and do it now.
  5. was kinda on the top of my budget atm but i think i'll manage it
    Would spending a bit less on the case psu and cpu cooler be ok?

    The CL 11 on those low voltage modules is less than desired. I would agree with DDR3-1600 over DDR3-1333, but basic 1.5v CL 9 modules are fine.

    MEM - Corsair CMX 4GB DDR3-1600 CL9 - $20 after MIR
